During MinneBar a Java Developer tapped me on the shoulder and asked if I had a couple of minutes to give her some career advice.
What she asked is a common question right now with Java and .Net Developers:
Should I learn Ruby? (I think she was really asking should she become a Ruby Developer)
A simple question with a not so simple, short answer:
The easy answer is yes. Well, maybe. It depends.
The IT Recruiter in me who works mostly with startups and tech companies wants to say:
Yeah and what are you waiting for.
But it is not that easy.
Do I think that developers should learn new languages?
